It's our most cherished fall tradition. The Philadelphia Orchestra Opening Night marks the beginning of Philadelphia's cultural season. It is a wonderful celebration of all that lies ahead.

Join Yannick and our Fabulous Philadelphians at the 2015 Opening Night Concert and Gala. This year's black-tie event promises the fellowship of friends gathering to celebrate the unique Philadelphia Sound of our Orchestra. Come join our shared revelry of incredible food, drink, and memorable music, all under the Kimmel Center's soaring roof of stars.
